Elmore County has filed application to lease and/or purchase the above described public lands under the authority of the R&PP Act. The proposed use of the land is for a community center and shed to house equipment necessary to maintain snowmobile trails for recreational use by the public. The lands will be developed and managed for community and recreational purposes, as described in the development plan submitted by Elmore County on January 15, 2000. We have determined that the lease or conveyance of the lands for the proposed community center and shed are in the public interest.
Publication of this notice in the Federal Register will segregate the above described public lands from the operation of the public land laws and the mining laws, except for mineral leasing and leasing or conveyance under the R&PP Act. In the absence of any adverse comments, the classification will become effective September 11, 2000. The segregative effect will automatically expire on January 14, 2002.
Comments: Comments may address whether the lands being classified are physically suited for the proposal, whether the use will maximize the future use or uses of the land, whether the use is consistent with local planning or zoning, or if the use is consistent with State and Federal programs. Comments may also address the specific use proposed in the application or plan of development, whether the BLM followed proper administrative procedures in reaching the decision to lease the land under the R&PP Act, or any other factor not directly related to the suitability of the land for the stated purpose. Adverse comments will be reviewed by the District Manager.
The lease of the lands will not occur until after the classification becomes effective, and will be subject to the following terms, conditions, and reservations: Start Printed Page 43036
